Post ffmpeg.SlackBuild: line 194: cd: /tmp/SBo/package-ffmpeg/usr/man: No such file or dir


ffmpeg.SlackBuild: line 194: cd: /tmp/SBo/package-ffmpeg/usr/man: No such file or directory

I was compiling ffmpeg with the slackbuild script and well it can not find this file that I think is the man pages file.

(Here is the line its referring to.)

Code:
cd $PKG/usr/man

I recently sent the following email to the maintainer of the ffmpeg Slackbuild :
Quote:
When running the script all of the "make" and "make install" steps executed fine, but at line 194 in the script I got an error telling me that the $PKG/usr/man directory did not exist.

I added a mkdir line before this point to create this directory and all seemed to work OK, although I note that nothing seems to have been written to this directory. I suspect therefore that my "fix" is possibly just bypassing a problem rather than fixing it properly.
I have had no reply, but you can see from the above that my "fix" does enable you to build the package.

Try Eric's ffmpeg SlackBuild. His packages always worked for me, and if you
have a problem he will answer. In fact, he'll even answer in LQ.

I have also tried to use this SlackBuild and have encountered the same error. I created the "man" directory and placed an empty file in it. When I tried the SlackBuild again, I got the same error message and the "man" directory with the empty file had been deleted. Any one know what to do?

Thank you very much for this fix. I've been trying to solve this for some days now and thanks to this clue finally got it working.

BTW, the Alien package didn't work for me (probably due to the dependencies that I already installed via SlackBuilds.org).

Same problem here and adding the mkdir to the SlackBuild "fixed" it.
